I am designing an Island castle, should I build a wall around the whole Island/castle...And do you have any suggestions as to how I should place my castle???

P.S. I am using a concentric style of building

Hi Nick.
If you let us know some more information we can look at existing castles to help answer your questions.
It would help if you could let us know the period you aim for, what part of Europe or the Middle East you aim to reproduce, the size of the island and the island's important characteristics such as shape, rockyness, height and distance from land.
Also, if there will be a town on the island.

Take a look at Beaumaris Castle. It's not so much on an Island, but large moat.

Others include Leven Castle in Scotland.

The other great Scottish castle on a island that springs to mind is Threave.
